Social policy is constantly evolving in the European Union and is closely intertwined with other EU policy areas. Since publication of the second edition of this well received text, we have seen the enlargement of the union to the east and increased debate about how to adapt its institutional structures to reflect its extended membership. The third edition takes account of these debates, as well as debates about the constitution, the need for more open European governance, and citizenship rights. It continues to offer a compact, clear and authoritative account of social policy formation and implementation across the European Union.
